(Newser) – Bristol Palin's wedding to a Marine war hero this weekend has been called off, mom Sarah Palin writes on Facebook. But the Palins are still planning "a great bar-b-que" in Kentucky that day for family and close friends, the former Alaska governor adds. Bristol and fiance Dakota Meyer "couldn’t be more thankful for the love and support of family and friends over the past months while preparing for their wedding," Palin writes, per USA Today. "They have informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held." Whether it's over or just delayed isn't totally clear, People notes.

Awkwardly, tabloids like the Daily Mail reported mere days ago on Meyer having a "secret wife" he was "still calling." But on mom's Facebook post, Bristol dismisses such "salacious headlines," saying "Dakota and I discussed our past relationships prior to our engagement. Dakota was legally divorced years ago." Indeed, Meyer's lawyer tells Inquisitr that the Marine and his former wife, Cassandra Wain, divorced back in 2010. But a friend of Wain's sister reportedly accused Meyer on Facebook of "trying to hide" the old marriage—and now Wain is "suffering from other peoples [sic] opinions of her based off your lies Dakota." Well, at least there's gonna be a barbecue. No fighting allowed. (Read more Bristol Palin stories.)
